Tuesday's Talons: Glittering Gems

Currently listening to: Devil May Care by Jamie Cullum

Good morning dear readers,

I suspect you will have noticed in recent weeks that I have a new favourite nail art design.  I hope you're not bored of it yet because once again this design is making an appearance on my blog ;-)


 I didn't take photos of every step of this but my starting point was to paint my nails with two coats of a-England Iseult.


 Then I sponged on a layer of Essence Enchanted Fairy as I had intended to do a pink gradient but it didn't work as I had planned.


So, to cover up my mistake, I used a coat of Barry M Pink Iridescent glitter.


 Then I stamped the ever faithful hibiscus flower on the corner of each nail using Barry M Fuchsia and Bundle Monster plate BM 313 and added a pink nail jewel to the centre of each flower.  I also added a stripe of silver glitter to each tip using an Essence striper but it didn't show up very well.


What do you think girls?  Do you love this design as much as I do?

Bye for now,
Laura
